ANNISTON, Ala. (WIAT) – A fire at Anniston’s Saks High School Sunday morning will result in summer school classes having to be moved.

Assistant Principal Derek Cobb tells CBS42 that a maintenance worker had entered the lunchroom around 8:30 Sunday morning. Once inside the person smelled smoke and contacted a supervisor who called 9-1-1.

Cobb says firefighters arrived within minutes and had the blaze out. Right now two classrooms are impacted on the second floor of the main building. Cobb says they have smoke and water damage. But he says because the fire was caught early the damage is minimal.

The cause of the fire is not known, but an investigation will continue on Monday. Meanwhile the campuses main office and summer classes will be moved to other buildings on campus.
